Citi’s Ida Liu to Chair Lotus Awards 2012
The Lotus Circle is a community of philanthropists working with The Asia Foundation to empower girls and women across Asia.
Last year, The Lotus Circle and The Asia Foundation honored Dr. David Ho with the first-ever Lotus Leadership Award at a sold-out event in New York City. He was recognized for his contributions to the health and well-being of Chinese women and children through his pioneering HIV/AIDS research.
On June 7, 2012, in the Loeb Boathouse in Central Park, the second annual Lotus Leadership Award will be presented to Dr. Sakena Yacoobi, Founder and Executive Director of the Afghan Institute of Learning, for her groundbreaking and visionary work empowering communities to bring education and health services to disenfranchised Afghan women and girls. The Asia Foundation’s decade of partnership with National Geographic Society to provide Afghan girls and women educational opportunities, and to improve devastated girls’ schools in Afghanistan, will also be recognized.
The Lotus Leadership Awards were created by Lotus Circle Advisors Gina Lin Chu, Carol Rattray, Missie Rennie, and Masako Shinn. This year, Lotus Circle Advisor and Head of North America Asian Clients Group at Citi Private Bank, Ida Liu, will chair the awards luncheon.
